MBUSA Issues Recall For A Few E350 And E550 Coupes

In case you’re not yet aware, Mercedes-Benz USA has issued a recall for some 2012 E350 and E550 Coupes. Specifically, for those cars manufactured between April 2, 2012 and June 29, 2012.

Goodness, gracious. Don’t say we didn’t tell you earlier. As of right now, 2,297 Mercedes-Benz diesel models have been recalled because of a potential fuel leak problem. These specific models are the 2011 E-Class, GL-Class, R-Class and M-Class rangers. Apparently, there’s an o-ring somewhere in the fuel system that wasn’t installed correctly during production. Mercedes-Benz did the right thing by informing the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (a.k.a. NHTSA) that they failed to lubricate the said o-ring before installing it into the fuel system of these models. This brings about high risk of fuel leaking from the system, specifically the fuel filter. NHTSA officials are actually more worried about… Continue Reading »
